Craving authentic korean food? Korean barbecue? Bibimbap? Korean fried chicken? Or some korean snacks? Come down to Tanjong Pagar road as this street is lined with many korean stores and even korean fusion stores!
This time round, we enter Wabar! A speciality beer bar hailing from south Korea! The first thing bar/restaurant greets you with is the stacks of bottled beers given a glow from the neon-lit panels, and K-pop music videos playing non-stop from the flat-screen TVs adorning the walls of the restaurant.
The restaurant was very empty as my friend and I entered (most probably because it was 3-4 pm) and we were warmly greeted by the staff. As we were scanning the menu, my friend and I wanted to buy two mains with korean fried chicken to go with but the waiter kindly hinted us that it may be alot of food as there were a wide variety of sides provided too. We took her tip and ordered a bibimbap and korean fried chicken!
Water was complimentary at the table and so was the variety of sides known as banchan, 반찬! The sides include Kimchi (seasoned salted vegetables), Kongnamul Muchim ( seasoned soya bean sprouts), Siguemchi Namul (seasoned spinach),Gaji Namul (steamed eggplant), Sukju Mamul (seasoned bean sprouts), Gamja Jorim ( braised potatoes), Mu Namul (Stir-fried radish), Yachae Bokkuem (Stir-fried sausage and vegetables) and Gamja Jorim (korean glazed potatoes)! When all the food arrived, we were glad that the waiter had told us that there was alot of food as by the looks of it, it was REALLY alot.
The Bibimbap was really filling and delicious! A harmony of vegetables with the spicy bean paste was delightful together! My friend and I finished it up and ended the whole meal with the korean fried chicken. The korean fried chicken was great, i mean like, have you ever had bad korean fried chicken? HAHAHA (P.S. i do have have a picture for the chicken :( )
